If you have a heterogeneous hardware platform, you shouldn't be aff\raid
to distribute binary kernels, userland, and ports.

It also sounds like you need a load balancer to do zero-downtime
upgrades.  Just take a server out of production, upgrade it, validate it
with the new OS, and put it back into rotation.
